High Class Yet Affordable

This new-concept digital grand is perfect for players who desire high-end piano sound, playability, performance, and the look of a classy grand piano.

Streamlined Design

With a streamlined grand-piano shape, the RG-1 is an elegant addition to any room. It features a lightweight, easy-to-open lid that can be locked while it is opened. The RG-1 is available in a gorgeous Satin Black finish that will compliment any space, small or large.

Superior Sound

The RG-1 is equipped with Roland's finest 88-key stereo multi-sampled piano sound in which the distinctive acoustic properties of each key have been captured, to accurately reproduce the subtlety of a full concert grand piano. Your ears won't believe how true to life this piano sounds and responds.

Perfect Touch

For the most authentic keyboard feel, the RG-1 features Roland's acclaimed PHA II keyboard with Escapement and Ivory Feel keys, which yields a heavier touch in the lower range and lighter touch in the upper. It also provides lighter resistance for pianissimo passages and stronger resistance for fortissimo. The white keys have a 2-piece structure that reduces the surface "click" noise when playing. The newly developed keyboard surface material is designed to absorb moisture, ensuring a secure, slip-proof feel that your fingers will love. The authentic coloration of grand-piano keys can also been seen on the sides of the white keys.

Characteristic "Click Feel" of Grand-Piano Keys

When the keys are pressed slowly, the resistance increases and then suddenly relaxes. The escapement architecture of the RG-1 keys reproduces the characteristic "click feel" of a grand piano for the ultimate in realistic performance and expression.

USB Media Features

Play along with your favorite songs by simply inserting an industry standard USB Flash Memory or optional USB CD drive. The RG-1's flexible file compatibility enables playback of WAV files and Standard MIDI Files through the built-in stereo speaker system -great for " one-man band" type performance, or skill-building play-along sessions.
